Another collaboration!

Actually meant to post this one a while ago but completely forgot to! It's the lines from the Frequency cover as coloured by the excellent Tom Scholes! You can see more of his work in his ConceptArt sketchbook which you can find here http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?p=1028711#post1028711

I really like your blog David, I noticed your reply at the thread I started at conceptart.org Is blogging useful for an illustrator?.
As you noticed I'm very new to blogs, how did you get to insert an image as your main banner as well as all the other little ones?

Hi George, you need to have somewhere else on line to host the image as a lot of the blog templates don't actually host the image, they just tell you where to look (like photobucket images on forums)

Once you have a place, you'll need to edit your template and find a piece of code that matches the following and then alter the url for the background to where your image is hosted. Hope that makes sense!

/* ---( header and site name )--- */

@media all {
#blog-header {
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
font-family: "Lucida Grande", "Trebuchet MS";
background: #e0e0e0 url(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v82/DaveTheOriginal/csv2-blog-header4.jpg) no-repeat top left;

#blog-header h1 {
margin: 0;
padding: 45px 100px 125px 1000px;
font-size: 0;
color: #fff;
text-shadow: #4F73B6 2px 2px 2px;
background: url(http://homepage.ntlworld.com/t.cousens/cs/images/csv2-blog-header4.jpg) no-repeat bottom left;
